Gluten Free Waffles

Happy Weekend everybody! I discovered this easy breakfast by Chef Jen Welper to make for that lazy Sunday coming up. It is not only yummy, but gluten free as well. Enjoy!

gf-waffle

Waffles are great as a sweet or savory breakfast in the morning. Unfortunately, a lot of people cannot indulge in them due to food allergies such as intolerance to gluten. However, this delicious recipe provides one gluten-free way to enjoy waffles.

INGREDIENTS:

3 ½ cup Rice flour

2 tsp. Kosher salt

½ cup Sugar

1 cup Ground flaxseed

1 tsp. Cinnamon

2 T. Baking powder

5 each Eggs, separated

½ cup Egg substitute

3 cups Skim milk

½ cup Canola oil

2 tsp. Vanilla extract

PREPARATION:

  • Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.   
  • In a separate bowl, separate the whole eggs (yolks and egg whites separate—egg whites in large metal mixing bowl).  Using a hand-mixer, beat the egg whites until a stiff peak form.
  • Combine the rest of the wet ingredients, including the egg yolks, and mix well.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, the batter should be a little lumpy (that is okay).  Gently fold in the egg whites, in 2 separate batches, until just combined.
  • Preheat the waffle iron.  Add ½ cup of batter for each waffle.  Allow waffle to cook as needed.

AMOUNT PER SERVING:  recipe makes 16 large waffles, but serving size is ½ of waffle cut into quarters (2 quarters each)
